Last Friday night at our writer's group meeting, our speaker talked about how important it was to get all five senses (if appropriate) in each scene. And I have to agree. By adding the other senses, we allow our readers to get more involved in each scene.
One thing I did when plotting out my romance novel was to take each scene/chapter and make notes of what the characters would hear, smell, feel, see and possibly taste. Once I knew what those items were, I could then add them in and make the scene richer. (I need to do this for my mystery. *sigh*
Now, you don't want to do an info dump of sensations. That's about as annoying as any other info dump but sprinkle those tidbits in here and there. Weave them in with the rest of the story. Maybe use them in your dialogue tags instead of the classic said.
So, what about you? Do you have trouble getting all or most of the senses in your stories? Got any ideas or tricks you use to get 'em in?
